What's a good setup for just general cruising around for a 250 lb rider?

Swap in the right spring for your weight, set the sag and play with the clickers. In my opinion the rear shock is golden. My forks may need a revalving at some point, but most likely just a spring swap. The suspension on these bikes is awesome.

weight 240 and I have 2014 and all you need to do is go up one size stiffer on the springs both ends. No revalve needed. But you need to do both ends!

Don't just do the forks like I did a couple years ago and think it's fine. The handling was transformed when I finally did the shock on my WR. Noticeably better in all conditions.

And in case you need a refresher on sag after the new springs: http://www.tootechra...ension_tips.htm
